Who are we?
#include <C++> is a global, inclusive, and diverse community for developers interested in C++. Here, you can find a welcoming space to learn and discuss C++. We also provide resources to create safer, more inclusive, community gatherings.
We believe that a community is only as good as how it treats its most vulnerable members. Therefore, we strive to create a welcoming, safe, and accessible environment. We have a strong Code of Conduct, which we enforce.
Our primary communication platform is our Discord server. Join us to discuss and learn C++ in a welcoming, inclusive space.
Everyone who supports our goals, whether a member of any under-represented groups or not, is welcome to participate in any way - see What can I do? Many of our leaders and contributors are allies and we are grateful for all they do. If you want C++ to be more welcoming and inclusive, you’ll be welcomed and included.
You can find out more from Sy Brand’s DevRelCon London 2019 talk “Lessons learned creating an inclusive space in a decades old community”.
